Have sent this out to others already but as my broadband is working relatively briskly on the BAA site I post my greetings below also: Rather too windy last night and was finally persuaded to leave the 415mm D-K in it's already overlong slumber when Jupiter (n/e) was seen to show marked arrhythmic-blinking! So I decided on some 'sightseeing' with the 20x100 binos. Checking out some possible targets on SkyMap Pro I chanced to notice that the asteroid 109 Felicitas was conveniently near nu & tau Aurigae; and was well seen. So with felicitations to all devoted sky-watchers I send the attached greeting - tinkered together this afternoon to amuse myself, as the prospects for tonight look pretty hopeless. All the best,David.

Here is a second attempt: some trouble with attachment it appears.Hi Everyone, Rather too windy last night and was finally persuaded to leave the 415mm D-K in it's already overlong slumber when Jupiter (n/e) was seen to show marked arrhythmic-blinking!
